Lawns and flowers

Ours is pretty brown, but it will come back. I have no problems with lawns. Neither does our resident doe. I photographed her eating some leaves off of the horse chestnut tree.

I went out later, and realized that the beautiful lilies, about to blossom, had been nipped in the bud. 


The lily on the left, chopped right off! I hope she enjoyed it!
Lots of swallowtails, and I think I saw a monarch, too. Fingers crossed.

Hubby walks in town, and managed a photo of a muskrat!


I've been watching the birds, too. This was a mother/daughter thing, I think! I could only grab a photo of the feed once, and a bad photo at that.

Down in the forest, this little one doing a selfie!

I spotted this photo on Twitter. I enjoyed his garden!

I really enjoyed this post with all the activity around you. Loss of the lilies seems a small price to pay although it would have definitely made me sad all the same.

I am not bothering with our tiny bit of lawn that remains.

I enjoyed my tea out on the back porch early this morning. The scent of the milkweed is heady. Attracting several butterflies and hummingbirds. Swallowtails, Admirals and MONARCHS!

The deer are quite beautiful.

Such a shame about the lily, hope she had indigestion!!! The lawn will grow again, meantime less to mow.

I think everyone's lawns are brown!

Deer think they're God's gift to the pruning technology.

Love this time of year!

Jenn - it never fails that the deer chomp on the things we value most. My goal is to have so much that I won't miss one or two. I have noticed a dramatic increase in chirping in our trees; it is definitely the young 'uns begging for food! Enjoy the rest of your week!
